    Extroversion is outer-directed, not (necessarily) people-directed.

    yes, but given as he's in a hospital, and his job is "saving" people...

    Also, his actions just don't strike me as very extroverted at all. Outside stimuli (seems to) tire him, and yet whenever there's a case he needs to really think on, he retreats within himself.

    We see House for less than an hour a week. That doesn't seem very extroverted of him to hide that like.

    Nope. His job is solving problems. Diagnosing problem cases. The people are incidental. Can you doubt this?

    He also has a depressive disorder.

    Introverts don't carry shows. Too hard to portray the beauty of their inner..ness *shrug*

    And House acts first, then thinks. Wasn't that a question on the MBTI?

    Saving people through solving thier problems. Yes some people die, but he still solvs the problems, I get that.

    Problems, however, are related to the people, which he dislikes very much. Which was my point.

    Which also makes him much more of an introvert in my opinion. Introverts can't carry most shows. But House does not nessecarily carry House. The interactions with the cast are what carry emotional value, while their meaning and whatever diagnostical problem arises is what creates interest. House is on the outside (metaphorically) watching and solving these events.

    Why, yes! Yes it was. Very good, lemons. You get a gold star.

    I apologize. I've been learning to train civil servants all week and it's hard to stop treating adults like children at will.

    plaguerat, you should have a youtube battle with bluemonday!

    Not much of a plot. You can probably find something better: (look for functions)

    Here is a short explanation of why I think House is ENTP, without relying on individual anecdotes.

    Judging functions = thinking and feeling
    Perceiving functions = sensing and intuiting

    J vs P determines whether your judging or your perceiving function is extroverted. A P always extroverts the perceiving function. That means that if we accept that House is a P (which I do), he has to have Ne or Se as his first or second function. That would mean he would have Ti or Fi as the other. I vs E determines whether your extroverted function is dominant or auxiliary. I, personally, see House as Ne-dominant, so he has to be either ENTP or ENFP. And that right there is a big fat duh.
